As for my list, as usual I bought a shitload of CDs this year, but not that many released in 2008. I'll probably buy some other greats in the coming few weeks or maybe somewhere next year (Duffy? Adele? Costello? Dylan?).

My top whatever of this year will probably look somewhat like this:
1. Voicst - A Tale Of Two Devils ( )
2. Gem - New
3. Coldplay - Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends
4. dEUS - Vantage Point
5. Gram - Four-Letter Word
6. Claw Boys Claw - Pajama Day

Yep, most of the new albums I bought this year were Dutch. And quite excellent too!

And I think I just discovered one of the contenders of Album of 2009: Roosbeef with Ze Willen Wel Je Hond Aaien Maar Niet Met Je Praten, again a Dutch record (some weird singer-songwriter stuff with a very peculiar sounding singer). Apparently that one is either up for release on 15 December (doubt it) or somewhere in January.

The back of my CD case says 2008, so that's good enough for me.

Technically the CD release was on December the 28th in Ireland or December 31st in the UK and worldwide. America isn't the world people!

Like we're supposed to know the release dates of all albums in countries not our own?

Well it was digitally released worldwide in 2007 too...and then the deluxe edition in December...and then a CD release in the majority of the world in 2007 but...I guess we can still say it's a 2008 release, for the Americans without the internet anyway
